Outgard - Barquentine, The Luddite-General of Lindisfarne

It has been far too long since I made regular posts, which is a pity because I've got two entries for RYR (Grime Lights) awaiting photos, along with two fantasy based projects and something of a Grime Lights prequel warband waiting in the wings!

Anyway, on Ammobunker right now, a group of phenomenal Scandinavian modellers have been working on something called Outgard, an INQ28 project aiming for a really low-tech medieval setting in the gothic majesty of the 41st Millennium. I've not been invited to participate, but it doesn't stop the creative juices flowing and idle hands are the Devil's playthings.....

Barquentine, The Luddite-General of Lindisfarne

Stories of the Luddite-Templars of Lindisfarne are told in whispers over guttering fires in the night. For their spies are everywhere, hunting down blasphemous wytchtech before summoning the true might of the Templar army to ensure its disposal.

The fortress-city on the large island of Lindisfarne, on the northern coast of Überwald, is considered (by its inhabitants at least) to be the last safe and free city on Outgard, providing you adhere to its strict ascetic laws laid down by the city's founder, Saint Edvard Ludd (who was in fact one of the last Imperial Fist astartes to die on Outgard before the 'Great Exodus' nearly ten thousand years ago).

Barquentine has served as general to the Luddite-Templars now for nearly two decades, but as age and severe old war-wounds have weakened his body, he has adopted the role of Spymaster, allowing the young, but firebrand Joan D'arquebus to take up his mantle.



Obviously, Barquentine is based on the wonderfully sublime John Blanche sketch below.

  1. This model is nothing short of remarkable! You did a fantastic job of capturing the spirit of the Blanche piece, the odd proportions, and feet. I really like the pistol you used, and love the face. The bare head give him a lot more personality I think.
